I am looking at at z412kw-48. I would appreciate any and all opinions and experiences with that machine.
We just picked up our new Kubota Z412KW-48 last weekend. First time ever even sitting on a ZT mower. Naturally, I felt like a spastic, and still pretty much just creep along until I learn 'how' to drive it. On the other hand, I love the way I can swing around, double-back, or just go in conventional patterns.
Incidentally, we purposely decided on limiting the size to 48" so we can get in between the many trees and shrubs on our lawn. Even so, we expect to spend less time mowing on the ZT than we've done with our previous Husqvarna 52" tractor type mower.
I looked at at least 12 different brands & models, and read tons of reviews on every make an model. The deciding factor was the fine reliable service I gotten from my 13-year old Kubota tractor, and the fine service my local dealer has provided for the last 40 years.
I expect to receive many years of reliable service out of our new Kubota ZT.
